Ecology North, Pembina and NWTAC have updated the Climate Change Guide for Community Decision Makers. This guide was developed to help communities mainstream climate change into all their decision-making processes. With ten chapters on everything from adaptation planning, hazard mapping, asset management to source water protection there is plenty of useful NWT specific information available.
The Guide is in its 3rd edition now, and Ecology North’s Craig Scott taught the first MACA School of Community Governance Course in Inuvik in February 2016. Thirteen community decision makers from the Beaufort and Gwich’in regions took the course. If you are interested in how you can bring climate change into your community’s planning processes you can download the guide, and student manual right here.
